    I cannot say enough good things about Meyer Hatchery. The only thing to say now is WOW! The girls hatched yesterday and were in the leaving Cleveland just before midnight...the arrived in Portland at 5:54 am and I got the call in Southern Oregon at 4:30. All of the girls are alive, eating, drinking and happy little things. I ordered 21 and received 22 beautiful girlies. They were packed in a great box and on a nice wrapped hay bed with a warmer underneath and sent Express.

    As far as service goes, Meyer Hatchery is A+ in my book. [​IMG] Even my fragile little faverolles are bouncing around. [​IMG]

    Now to begin naming...they will be named after Harry Potter characters and Disney characters...one Ameraucana is already named Cruella....DD says she has an evil look with the markings on her face. hahahahaha

    I believe MPC works with Meyer...not sure about that though, I know they work with one of the hatcheries to get the small order thing. Meyer does not have a minimum per se...you pay extra for shipping on less than 25. But they are really packed comfy. I had been warned not to order faverolles because they are fragile chicks...all of my girls are doing great. They were in my hands in less than 36 hours and I did not pay for next day...just express.

    The ladies there are fabulous. They are patient and work with you to get your order set up for the breeds you want.

    I do not see my red cochin I ordered, but the blue cochin is there and it looks like 2 extra faverolles. So, I am very pleased because I did not get anything I did not order and the extra and replacement is a breed I ordered.

    check em out....
